We start with a black U.S. Army general who, in the beginning, looks like a good, respectable possibility for a black president. No scandals in his past at all.
But The Chessmaster The Man
and his evil organization get to the general and leave him brainwashed.
Right when he's supposed to be announcing his candidacy, he gives up his dream of politics to run a chain of fried chicken restaurants. It's evil fried chicken, too, but we don't learn that immediately.
The good secret organization,
The BROTHERHOOD, needs to stop this before it goes any farther. But to do that, they must call the great Blaxploitation
hero Undercover Brother. Undercover Brother is stuck in The Seventies
, but he knows kung fu.
Undercover Brother is asked to infiltrate the evil Organization undercover. He is given a watch that sprays hot sauce to fight off the potential evil of mayonnaise on white bread. But, once on assignment, he meets an incredibly beautiful blonde
who appears to be trying to befriend him, and things go bad...

- Fighting with Chucks: The title character knows how to use nunchucks as part of his martial artist skills. He also hits himself in the nuts while using them during his fight with Mr. Feather. This may have been a subversion, since the look on his face as Feather charges indicates it was a trick.
- Five-Man Band with UB as the Sixth Ranger. Totally Lampshaded. I mean, The Chief, Smart Brother, Lance, Sistah Girl. The only one that doesn't fit is Conspiracy Brother as the Big Guy, which is probably why they need Undercover Brother in the first place.
